Active Comparator: Active tDCS
Subjects will receive 20 minutes of active tDCS for five consecutive days, current of 2 mA, in the temporoparietal left area, and right prefrontal cortex.
Device: Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
Anodal stimulation of the temporoparietal left area with an cathode over the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. Stimulation will be applied for 20 minutes at 2 mA.
Other Name: Direct current stimulator; Transcranial stimulator
Sham Comparator: Sham tDCS
Subjects will receive 20 minutes of Sham tDCS for five consecutive days in the temporoparietal left area, and right prefrontal cortex.
Device: Sham Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation
Sham tDCS sessions will last 20 minutes
Other Name: Sham stimulation
- Tinnitus Handicap Inventory [ Time Frame: THI will be measured before intervention (baseline), after 5 daily sessions (day 5) and 1 month after the last intervention. ]Assesses change in tinnitus from baseline to follow-up periods post interventions
- Visual Analogue Scales (VAS) of perceived tinnitus loudness and distress [ Time Frame: Visual analogue scale of tinnitus wiil be recorded at baseline (before intervention), before and after daily sessions with tDCS (day 1 to 5) , and 1 month after the last intervention. ]Self assessment of tinnitus loudness and tinnitus distress.
- Acuphenometry [ Time Frame: Acufhenometry wiil be recorded at baseline (before intervention), before and after daily sessions with tDCS (day 1 to 5) , and 1 month after the last intervention. ]Subjective assessment of the frequency, intensity and type of tinnitus.
